Happy Monday friends! Last Thursday was my 24th birthday, and I had such a nice day spent with family and dear friends. I always love my birthday, not so much for the celebration, while I do love that, as much as for the time to reflect on what I’ve done and been blessed with in the past year. I also love to take this time to come up with a list of goals I want to achieve at the new age I’ve reached. I’m told I should compile a 25 before 25 bucket list– have any of you done this? This year I’m particularly aware of just how much can change in a year as I think back to last summer when I was totally unsure of my path after my college graduation that spring. Since then I’ve been given so many wonderful opportunities, and I’ve grown so much. I even managed to mostly conquer my fear of driving!
On a less serious note, I’m a big believer in birthday dresses! This year I wore this white lace number I picked up in the Anthropologie tag sale. It’s full of beautiful details and makes me feel like a heroine from classic literature. It went from birthday breakfast with my dad (super yummy crepes!) to a family party that evening without a lot of fuss while still looking pretty. I want to wear it every day! I kept my accessories simple and summery with a thrifted basket bag and two-toned slide sandals.
